St. Anthony of Padua
Matthew 5:20-26
One of the hallmarks of the gospel of Jesus is that it is good news for sinners.  In other words, the good part of Good News is that it is not only the righteous, and certainly not only the self-righteous, who have access to God, but those who need God’s healing—quite a reversal of the prevailing ideas of ritual cleanliness accepted in Jesus’ day. We place our trust in Jesus.
